The Person You Mean to Be

This book is for people who believe in social justice but aren’t out there on the front lines making speeches and marching in protests. According to author Dolly Chugh, the front-line fighters bring the heat, while the rest of us bring the light, and both are needed to enact real change in the world. Chugh helps readers move from being “believers,” who want equity and justice, to “builders,” who actually make society more equitable and just by changing their own behaviors and influencing their family, friends, and colleagues.

The book is full of personal stories and practical advice, and written in a conversational tone that is easily accessible to anyone who feels they haven’t quite become the person they mean to be.
